City library

historische Ansicht der Bibliothek

The public library was founded as a public facility in the fall of 1878 in a small room at the public school in Aue. At this time, there were about 600 books available in this public and student´s library. Despite the rental fee of 10 Pfennigs per book and an admission fee of 25 Pfennigs there was a great interest in books.
Until 1931 the library remained accommodated in the school. In the same year the library was renamed into city library ("Städtische Bibliothek") and was merged with the school for adult evening classes, Aue.

In 1933 the library was closed temporarily, after the national socialist fraction of the municipal councils had requested the removal of the head of the library from his post and the "cleaning" of the library by removing "Marxist and Pacifist" books. After the forced political reorganisation of the library, it was reopened in the municipal house in 1937.

Stadtbibliothe heute

Even during the war the library was opened twice a week and book deliveries can be proved until May 31, 1945. After the war another stock-taking and selection was done. During the time following, the library was temporarily accommodated in the former Freimaurerloge (Masonic Lodge), in Wehrstrasse and Bahnhofsstrasse, until in the 1950s it took up the rooms still occupied by it.

In the fall of 2003 the public library of the city of Aue has its 125th anniversary.
